The State of Connecticut may have money for you and you don't even know it.
Nearly 53,000 new names have been added to the state's list of unclaimed property, according to State Treasurer Denise Nappier.
"We have millions of dollars waiting to be returned to owners," Nappier said in a release.
The CTBigList, as it's called, was created to alert people who have unclaimed funds that for one reason or another have been turned over to the state.
In all, there are 1.6 million names of people or entities that have unclaimed property coming to them. There is a total of $888 million in unclaimed property, according to Nappier.
While some of the amounts are small, others have significantly valued property awaiting them.
Below is a look at some of the value ranges of property and the number of names that have property worth that amounts on the list:
- $50-$100: 24,901 names
- $100-$500: 21,199 names
- $500-$1,000: 3,130 names
- $1,000 -$5,000: 3,261 names
- More than $5,000: 503 names
